Winter Snow

Snow has a bit of magic and wonder, so pretty, so white, so sparkly.

Putting It Together

I love winter and I love snow. I love the sparkle and the peaceful quiet of a snowy day. Just drive safely!

To make the embellishments, I attached adhesive sheet to vellum.

Using the Precision base plate and Big Shot, I die cut the word Winter and some snowflakes.

I removed the release paper and used a release paper scrap as a handle on the sticky die cut.

I dumped on glitter (Teal on the word, Cool Diamond on the snowflakes), then brushed off the excess. I finger burnished the glittered die cut.

The vellum allows the transparency of the glitter to show through.

I used the Simon Says Stamp Stiched Swirls to create a background with Neenah metallic paper. I dry fit the card front.

I cut a 5.5" x 8.5" panel and scored it at 4.25" and 2.875" to make an easel card base.

I used glue dots on the snow flakes and word since the glue dots are mostly clear and the glitter on them is semi opaque.

To make an easel card, I adhered the bottom of the front panel to the lower portion of the card base.

The closed card shows off the wintery snow.

I added a sentiment to the front of the inside of the card and a ribbon decoration to also hold the easel open.
